Thanks to the Gulf Stream, the climate of the Azores is mild all year round with high temperatures in the 60s and 70s (15 to 25 degrees Celsius).

Each island has its own climate, with micro-climates produced by the relief and geographical location. The islands benefit from a temperate, maritime climate with mild winters. However, it can get humid is and the wettest months are October to March.

Rain is sporadic throughout the day, but, if you wait long enough, the sun will shine again in a few hours or minutes. This is why the land is so green and rainbows so frequent.
